Equity - LaPlaca Cohen

"Embedding racial equity, inclusion and belonging as the guiding forces and foundation of the cultural organization only elevates the impact that the arts can achieve. Now, more than ever, our communities are seeking the connection, empathy, and truth-telling that the arts can so vibrantly provide. This is the work: urgent, incremental, sustained, and structural change in service to our collective healing and understanding."
